Martha Pitfield abt 1740 from Dorset/Devon

Martha Pitfield abt 1740 from Dorset/Devon

Does anyone have any information about Martha Pitfield who married Benjamin Hann/Caundle Marsh 1760. Martha was residing in Wootton Fitzpaine before marriage. Cannot find any online baptism record for a Martha Pitfield in Dorset, there is however a IGI christening record for a Martha Pitfield in Colyton, Devon 1744 which would mean she was only 16 when she married, if baptised at birth.

Hi

have been researching the Pitfield family for many years - see website www.pitfield-family.co.uk. Have not come across marriage of Martha Pitfield to Benjamin Hann so would love to have any details.

A Martha Pitfield was christened at Colyton 1744 but I believe she died and was buried there in 1745.

I do not have any other likely Martha that fits the bill.

There were Pitfields at Wootton Fitzpaine at the right time period but no Martha is listed there

You would be better going on the main Dorset list as lots of people just send all gateway stuff to the junk / spam box without even looking at it.
